Stunning 1980 Steel and Gold Rolex Oyster ‘Quick Date Set’ Datejust Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the steel & gold Rolex Oyster Datejust ‘Quick Date Set’ from 1980. The steel and gold (fluted bezel and crown) case is in excellent condition with only the most minimal signs of wear. The original Rolex signed champagne pearlescent dial is untouched and in excellent condition. The applied gold Roman Numeral hour numbers along with the original gold hands flow beautifully into the champagne dial and solid gold fluted bezel (the sapphire lens is in excellent condition). The super high grade Rolex signed calibre 3035 chronometer automatic movement is again in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by our professional watchmaker. To complete this beautiful piece we’ve added a new, high quality, dark brown crocodile skin strap with steel aftermarket Rolex buckle.

Our asking price is below the value for a watch of this condition and rarity, particularly with the continual rise in value of vintage watches of this high quality. In view of the high grade Swiss movement, I will include a twelve month written guarantee on the movement, which is long enough for you to assess the working order.
